The Man Who Shot Beautiful Women is a documentary about the photographer Erwin Blumenfeld. It's just aired in the UK and it was post produced on FCPX for Auntie.
Nick Watson got in touch with us as he was putting the finishing touches to the documentary. As it was edited on Final Cut pro X for the BBC, he asked if we would be interested in featuring it here on FCP.co. We of course said yes...
